Bugs, bugs and more bugs
An entomology seminar is being held today at 4 p.m. in the Marley building, Auditorium 230.
The lecture will focus on insect invasions, informatics, interfaces and identities and will be lead by George Roderick of the department of environmental science, policy and management at the University of California, Berkeley.
Engineering profs awarded da Vinci Circle Fellowships
Three members of the College of Engineering were awarded with da Vinci Circle Fellowships.
Achintya Haldar, professor of civil engineering and engineering mechanics, Charles Higgins, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, and Anthony Muscat, associate professor of chemical and environmental engineering, were all presented with the da Vinci Circle Fellowships.
These fellowships, which were created this year, are designed to recognize faculty members who have made outstanding contributions to their department, college and profession.
Each year, two fellowships will be awarded. However, three were named in this inaugural year after a da Vinci Circle board member funded a third fellowship.
They were selected for their distinguished and sustained records in teaching, research and service to their departments, the College of Engineering, the UA and their profession. Emphasis was placed on substantial and continued contributions.
In addition to the title of da Vinci Circle Fellow, the award carries a $5,000 stipend for teaching, research and service activities.
